A) TrueB) False21) The sea level has risen more than 120 m since the peak of the last ice age about 18,000 years ago. The bulk of that occurred after the beginning of the Industrial Revolution and coincides with the global glacier retreat.Page 3 of 9

These records tell us that the current warmth is actually not the highest in Earth’s history.A) TrueB) False25) One of the assertions made in opposition to the global warming theory is that the decreased Galactic cosmic rays reduce the low-altitude cloud cover.26) Global temperatures are directly related to sunspot activity. A lower sunspot number possibly results in higher temperatures on Earth. 27) During the La-Nina conditions, Peru experiences abnormally wet weather.28) Recent scientific evidence supports the assertion that the global warming has increased the frequency and intensity of the hurricanes and other extreme meteorological events.A) TrueB) False 29) The Biosphere experiment proved that ecology can be science; it made complex natural systems more like chemistry and physics - something researchers can observe.

This process reflects the predominance of the bottom-upto the top-downdecision making.
